2022 Offerings

Dream Dance the Astral Hoop

ONLINE          Sunday, April 24, 2022                1 – 4 p CDT US

Dreaming is an extremely spiritual experience. In tribal cultures, the process of dreaming is more important than the content of any given dream. And it’s important to develop dream consciousness. It’s the way we work the feminine heart and brow chakra together as one aspect of the emotion-based etheric body. The further we expand into the astral dimensions, the more our perceptual functions alter – in many directions at once. Changing what we’re aware of during and after night dreams is not the only stretching to be done. We can expect to see day dreaming change too. Unfortunately, both waking and sleeping dream processes have become a lost art. Join the Circle with notes on one or two of your most recent dreams. Doing so will help you get the most from the class.

In addition, we gather to celebrate a day that lunar astrologers identify as one that propels us to be spiritually at our high-minded best.

Praying the Way Forward

ONLINE – Sunday, May 22, 2022                        1 – 4 p CDT US

Like dreaming is more important than the content of any particular dream, prayerfulness is more important than the content of any prayers. For traditional tribal families, the mindset assumed while in prayer supersedes the words, thoughts, attitudes and feelings experienced while praying. Many people consider the heart as a bridge between the material and spiritual, but the true bridge is the higher will, the will to serve, and such service is creatively-expressed through prayer. Join the group and become aware of how to serve in an expanding capacity as stewards of the Earth-in-transformation. Also, on this day we kick off what solar astrologers identify as one of the best weeks of 2022.
